    Ws2812B 5050 like it is used everywhere inside your PC

     
    The IC/die should be the same (as far as I know) but they aren't. Since the 5050 part came from a trustable source (at least not aliexpress) the 2020 might no actually be the part I ordered.

    If you publish your project there are things you shouldn't do:
    1. Don't spam links to your blog all over the internet
    2. don't place your BOM behind affiliate link which don't work meaning no BOM available.
    3. use standard file formats. TinyCAD isn't the right answer
    4. clean up your drawings and PCB files
    5. add proper labelling so you don't need to guess which file is the right one
    6. communicate that you decided against the reference layout and don't follow the standard you claim to follow
    7. Don't know. At this point I deleted the files and blocked the web page.
     
    Is it so difficult to follow basic rules when you have a "commercial interest" in building up a reputation???

    Upgrading the Anet A6 to a 3D-printer laser engraver hybrid sounds sweet and like a bad idea. Powerful laser, open frame, no safety switches but still tempered to build it. In the end I could buy pudding keycaps and laser engrave them instead of printing them clear, painting it black and sanding down the paint so only the paint in the rest areas stay.

    Btw. this is just a upgrade for the spoolholder (and nothing fancy like these: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2513571 to stop light bleeding on keyboards) to reduce wear on the stepper motor pulling the filament.

    The corpus made from wood (cut by the hardware store) would cost the same as the wood paper combination from ikea.
     
    Should I try to return it and build a tailor-made solution? I guess in the end I need to return to shop anyway for a solution.

    first mock up of the 3D printer enclosure: 80x52x70cm
    Any thoughts?

    Don't know why inventor makes this glass so dark but it will be clear in reality. The wood on top would also be closer to white.
    I am unhappy with three points in particular: 
    - large bezel around the window but I don't know where I could get custom size glass
    - maybe a additional window on the other side but there again the same problem
    - the drawer is just 13 cm high and I don't know if this is worth the cost over a simple shelf

    A few tips I got or found out on how to make thingiverse usable:
    - don't use it during prime time, the website won't work
    - create a new thing and immediately save it, then edit it to add all the information and files
    - keep a local copy of the text just incase it won't work
    - wait some days/weeks for the server to process the thingview and images before publishing it
